WHO WE ARE

ConceptsCarabez was founded by Fiona Caruana Carabez an interior designer with a passion for beautiful yet practical homes and spaces. Fiona was fortunate to convert a hobby into a dream job after friends and family frequently entrusted her with designing, finishing and furnishing their homes. Following a formal interior design education Fiona launched ConceptsCarabez which at first she operated from her own home.

Today the firm has developed other services that include 3D imaging used for both interior design projects and as real estate sales visuals.

With extensive experience and investment in this field ConceptsCarabez is equipped to render photographic quality images bringing Fiona's design ideas to life even before the project has begun.

Whilst scouring property for sale websites Fiona was dismayed by the lack of quality being displayed on local real estate websites. Homes for sale where displayed full of clutter and the photography was atrocious. Research into a solution led her to an art practiced overseas called Home Staging.

She learnt that in other countries, homes that were staged to sell sold faster and for higher prices then unprepared houses. Given that this was pioneer thinking for the Maltese Islands Fiona for forced to obtain her education overseas returning five years ago to add a novel and new service to the ConceptsCarbez service portfolio. Her first clients were RE/MAX who immediately understood the potential and introduced their successful Exclusive, Added Value Listing Package which is still a powerful tool that they use to sell properties quickly and for better prices.
